of defense and the secretaries of all of the armed forces groups, got together to honor the veterans of the korean war. it was a sight to see so many korean veterans from so many different parts of the country. and they were reminded by our president that we had been labeled as those who participated in what was referred to as the forgotten war. because most all of the world knew about the importance of america being involved in saving emocracy in world war ii and vietnam. good or bad, people knew people that went there. but somehow in the middle of that, no one really missed us or knew where korea was or didn't appear that there was too much concern. d when we did return, unlike the vietnam veterans who really unfairly had been treated so unkind, fortunately for us, we were never missed except by our family and friends, people never they here we were and to us. weren't as kind veterans turned out from all over. comrades that were part of the 20 countries that were part of the united nations. and when north koreans invaded south korea, those of us who were called to go to south korea

, let me get to you react to what mark o'mara, the defense attorney for george zimmerman posted a little while ago, while juror b-29 is a model juror. "people may disagree with self-defense laws but a juror's job is not to decide what a law should be, her job is to apply the facts presented at trial to the laws they are instructed about. this is the eence of what we seek in a juror, the at to use one as common sense, apply the law to the facts, agree not to be swayed by sympathy or emotion, no matter how loudly it's argued by the prosecutors and decide a lawful and fair verdict." do you agree that juror b-29 was a, quote, model juror? >> well, i don't know if she was a model juror or not. i certainly think that she approached the process in good faith. i don't think there's any reason to doubt that she did that. but i think jeffrey makes a good point. what is really clear when we hear this juror speak is that she really misunderstood the law. she did not appropriately apply the law to the facts because she didn't understand it. and the reason why she didn't understand it could be because

budget that provides tax breaks for the wealthy and large corporations and unneeded increase in defense spending while slashing funding for medicaid, food stamps and women and children's funding has left appropriators with such small funding allocations that this bill was unworkable and unrealistic from the start. so here we are, slashing programs that serve and protect the most vulnerable among us, programs that are proven to save us money in the long run, and programs that support flexibility and accountability in our communities. we may disagree, mr. speaker, on how to keep our economy strong, but we should all agree that we must stop piling these cuts on the backs of seniors, the working poor, women, kids and the middle class. stop these cuts to our communities, we should reject this bill, unless it's grossly increased in the aggregate which it won't be as we know. so we should reject this bill. thank you, mr. chairman, i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. for what purpose does the gentleman from new york rise? >> i move

member -- but i always say i am a big spender in two areas -- defense and infrastructure. that is what we are supposed to be doing here, if you read the constitution. i am upset with some of my conservative friends who make statements on the floor as we were trying to get this bill passed that we are really not right. in fact, the conservative position was to do a re- authorization as opposed to doing extensions tom extensions you could argue that take 30% off the top or 28%. we know it takes a lot of money out of the system. you cannot plan for it. you cannot put the reforms. we have more reforms in our bill a year ago than all other bills, i think, combined. you don't get that with extensions. so we will be faced with this thing. group, thenservative americans -- the american conservative union, correctly use the statement i used on the floor saying the conservative position is to come up with a good, healthy re-authorization bill and start doing what the constitution says we are supposed to be doing. i just know that we are going to do the best we can, and we are going to work as a tea

. the defense betrayed manning as a naive whistleblower who wanted to explodes -- what to expose war crimes. some call him an anarchic hacker and a traitor. he faces a possible life sentence if convicted of the charges. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. the first lady reflects reflects the schism that is in the united states about women -- about what women are supposed to be. are we supposed to be mom in chief? our we supposed to be first mate? -- if thee that president is supposed to be head of state and head of government, is the first lady supposed to be the ideal fashionista? in-she supposed to be mom- chief? is she supposed to be the first helpmate? if she is going to be the first helpmate, that means she needs to understand what is going on in the administration. she needs to understand what is going on in the country, and she has to understand her husband's political agenda. you cannot really separate how the first lady present herself and the conflicting expectations that the country still has four working wives and mothers. >> as we continued our conversations
